A very interesting plot

Yes folks, this is a very good episode from the Edgard Wallace Mystery TV shows. The exciting tale of two hoodlums who steal a car in which there is a note - a ransom letter - directed to a wealthy man whom the daughter has just been kidnapped. And of course the two gangsters stole the abductor's car. They find the note and decide to take advantage of the situation, collect the money and impersonating the real kidnappers, no matter the kidnapped girl's life, if they can't deliver her to her father. Of course...Because if the real abductors don't get the dol...

But the police force is here, waiting...

I won't spoil any further, but it is a very efficient tale, believe me.
